Editors Tony Perrello and C. Anne Engert welcome proposals for individual and co-authored chapters for a volume entitled Renaissance Literature and Modern Sociopolitical Applications: Leadership, Power, and Literary Legacies. We are in the process of assembling a collection of essays that explores the current American crises of leadership through the dramatic literature of the English Renaissance or vice versa. We believe that many of our colleagues are already talking about the intersection between these two topics, and we envision this edited volume as an opportunity to further such exploration in a scholarly venue. Palgrave MacMillan has shown interest in the project, which we aim to complete by March of 2019.

Shakespeare’s plays and the critical conversations around them are deeply concerned with questions of culture.  Many of the plays are set in cultures different than Shakespeare’s own early modern England, from Denmark to Italy to Ancient Rome, often using those cultures to examine his own.  Productions of his plays have been set in a dizzying array of cultures, in order make comments on yet other cultures.  The culture of Imperial Britain made use of Shakespeare in order to dominate (and often consume) the cultures which they colonized.

This one day symposium aims to explore the relatively under-developed study of siblings in visual culture and performance.

 

In drama, family relationships are both ubiquitous and complex and whether a Renaissance revenge tragedy or a play by Harold Pinter, the plot often pivots on the loyalty or jealousy between siblings, confusion caused by twins or conflict prompted by illegitimacy. Whilst there have been many explorations of the role of siblings in Shakespeare, the examination of sibling relationships in its many forms, remains a fruitful area of discussion for plays from the sixteenth to twenty-first century.
